Join us as we commemorate the life and death of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa on January 21, 2022.
Sister M. Patrick Michael De Lourdes passed away unexpectedly on the evening of November 29, 2021.
The Carmelite Sisters held a prayer service in remembrance of our Sisters who have gone before us. It is very fitting to remember them as the Universal Church prepares for the commemoration of the faithful departed on All Souls' Day. It was attended by our Avila Sisters and the Prioresses who gathered at the Motherhouse for their General Meeting.
Sister M. Joseph Catherine De Lourdes O.Carm. passed away unexpectedly at Ozanam Hall on the morning of January 5, 2021 in the 64th year of her religious life.
The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm are happy to announce that on Thursday, June 28, 2012, His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, authorized the Congregation for the Causes of Saints in Rome to promulgate the decree of Heroic Virtues of their Foundress, Mother Mary Angeline Teresa, O.Carm. (Bridget Teresa McCrory).
In recent years the Carmelite Sisters have had the privilege of having research conducted by Very Rev. John F. Russell, O.Carm., regarding the Spirituality of Mother Angeline Teresa McCrory, O.Carm. Last year, Fr. Russell presented this for the first time to our Sisters who made the Renewal Program at Avila. To have Mother's spirituality described in such a beautiful way was truly a wonderful experience for the Sisters.
